Since this is the time of year many of us take a break and go on a vacation, to family reunions, visit old friends, have picnics, or even just enjoy nice quite "staycations", I thought it might be a little fun to do an ATC swap with this as a theme. By illustrating something you saw or experienced, you can take all of us with you on your adventure.  I'm also thinking that some of us may decide to have an imaginary or dream vacation instead of what we really do! For example, instead of soaking your feet in the dog's water bowl all summer to stay cool, you may dream of scuba diving in the Sea of China! Your choice of real or dream(maybe even a mixture of both). Make sure to tell the story behind your card so we can enjoy the trip as well! (esp if something really cool happened!)

Everyone will have 2 partners and be responsible for making one original atc card for each of them. You may used whatever media you feel comfortable with. If you wish to include a postcard, map or even a small souvenir from your trip that would be wonderful - BUT NOT REQUIRED. 

Deadline to sign up will be July 30 and cards should be mailed no later than Aug 19. Hopefully this will give all plenty of time to go have some fun and come back home to share it with our friends!

Please post your address below or mark as *Private Address*. You will be responsible for sending your address to your partners if it is private.

The 27th-2nd I will be out of town and have very little access to the internet so please do not think that I have forgotten you during this time.

Alright!  3 more vacationers to add to the list! I think this will prove to be a very interesting swap!

Yay!  Made it back home in one piece! 107 degrees in West Texas is sooooooo much nicer than 107 degrees here in East Texas LOL   Very excited to find several fun looking envelopes in my mail, I can't wait to open them!

Susanne, yours is one of the envelopes here in front of me and the anticipation is killing me. Happy to add you to the list!

Wow Stacy, 107 degrees!!!!!  I thought we got hot in summer but so do you! Marion
